A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.Rabindranath Tagore
It does not need much foreknowledge to realize that this knife is not ordinary. The Yakushima Croco Hunter Chef's Knife is an absolutely unique masterpiece. In a vacuum heat treatment 103 layers of high quality Damascus are wrapped around a stable VG10 core. In order to achieve an exceptional sharpness, each knife is hand sharpened using a water-cooling process by an experienced blacksmith. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, while being sturdy and durable. Finally, a hardness of 59-60 HRC is achieved.
The ergonomic handle is hand polished and made of high quality serpentine wood. Since the age of the wood is different for each handle, variations in colour or shape can occur, making each knife unique.
To underline the exclusivity of the Yakushima Croco Hunter, each knife comes with an Italian, hand-stitched vegetable tanned leather sheath, which is partially covered with phyton and crocodile skin. It is the ultimate knife that leaves no wishes unfulfilled!
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
